  • "Communication is Key"
    Five Star! I hired Cody Dowden for a traffic ticket I received while driving through Arkansas. When I called his office to see if he would represent me, I was surprised I was able to talk to Cody directly. Hours after my phone call he sent me a detailed plan of what he was going to do as well as what he needed from me. He kept me updated along the way. I was most impressed by his quick responses and level of communication. I would recommend Cody Dowden to anyone with a traffic ticket in the NWA area. He will represent you well.

  • Out-of-State Drivers Beware
    My family and I were visiting Arkansas from Texas when I was pulled over for speeding. The ticket said "15 over limit", which in Arkansas equates to an automatic "reckless driving" charge (maximum $500 fine and up to 90 days in jail). Upon learning this I panicked and immediately began looking for competent representation via the internet. After reading a multitude of positive reviews I decided to call Cody...I'm thankful I did! Upon hearing my story Cody assured me everything would be okay and then immediately went into action. When all was said and done, the charge never appeared on my driving record and I paid a small fine. I was also not required to return to Arkansas for my hearing as Cody handled everything. If you ever find yourself in need of a GREAT attorney in NW Arkansas, you should definitely call Cody Dowden!

  • Best Possible Results
    Before meeting with Cody I went to another lawyer. That lawyer collected his fees up front and then told me that winning my case was absolutely impossible. He strongly suggested that I plead guilty. I then went to Cody Dowden (thank goodness). Cody worked out a deal in which I was found not guilty! This saved me a lot of hardship and also a lot of money in the long run. Cody was masterful in the courtroom. It was obvious that the prosecutors and the judge trusted and respected Cody. It was that mutual respect that enabled him to work out a deal that I believe only he was capable of. Cody is a consummate professional. I highly recommend that you hire him should you ever find yourself in need of a DUI, DWI or Criminal defense lawyer.

  • Above & Beyond
    I highly recommend for anyone to hire Cody Dowden as your lawyer; he went above and beyond for us and made sure to prove my innocence with a public intoxication charge and a domestic charge. He is trustworthy and detailed with information needed about your case. Thank you Cody!

  • The Right Place To Go
    This is the second time I needed a lawyer and I'm glad Cody was recommended by a friend. He went the extra mile meeting me in another town when I couldn't get to his office. I didn't feel like a number or "just another customer". He kept me out of jail got my fines lowered and kept the charges off my record. This was the right place to go.

    - Mitch

  • Wonderful Experience
    Cody was amazing. He went out of his way to meet us and accommodated some special circumstances I have with the family. He was straight to the point, delivered exactly what he said for a very fair price. While I hope I don't need his Services again he would definitely be the first call I make and I highly recommend him to anyone else.

  • Great Representation & Great Results
    I hired Cody to represent me on a case that was going to cost me both personally and professionally if it wasn't handled correctly. Cody not only took the time to discuss my case in detail, but he worked hard to achieve the outcome that was absolutely necessary for me. I don't think the outcome would have been as good for me with anyone else. If your case is a big deal, make the right choice.

  • Awesome Lawyer!
    I was told to go to Cody by someone else who has used him before and I'm glad I did. He told me what to expect and did what he said he would do. Things would have been much worse if Cody didn't help me. Thank you Cody!

    - John

  • Amazing Results
    Cody was great to work with. He took a case I didn't think could be fixed and made it where I didn't have to do any jail time or even any community service! I'm happy with the outcome and will use him again if I have to but hope I never do have to!

    - Lacey

  • Problem Solved
    I haven't had a ticket for anything in about 25 yrs. so I was nervous about messing up my record, having my insurance increase, and paying hefty fines for my lack of better judgement. Cody was able to basically make my ticket "go away". And, I have never had to go to court. AWESOME! Thank you!!!

  • Top Notch Defender
    I hired Cody after consulting with another firm whom left me feeling pretty hopeless but had no problem charging me a pretty penny. Cody sat down with me and my wife and explained everything, the positives and the negatives and strategies of what he would do depending on the prosecutors moves. He was always available should I have any questions. Cody handled my "Battery in the 3rd" hearing very professionally bringing the facts to life and extinguished any false testimony turning my case around in his closing argument and getting the results we had hoped for. I will for ever be grateful that I called him. Cody's rates are very reasonable and his service is top notch.

  • Best Outcome
    We are not from the NW Arkansas area and needed a local attorney who knew the area. Cody was our guy! He was easy to work with, very accessible and the resolution to our case was the best outcome we could have had. I would highly recommend Cody Dowden if you need an attorney in NW Arkansas.

  • A Helpful Guide
    Cody was extremely helpful through every part of my journey, from the moment I called him, all the way to my court date. He counseled me on which approach he thought would be best, and was even able to get on of my charges dropped. He is by far, the best lawyer I've ever used.

  • High Class
    If you ever find yourself or someone you know in a questionable situation / charge, do contact Mr. Dowden for first class representation, he will do everything with great timing and care, a true gentleman.

  • You'll Thank Yourself Later
    I live in another state and I was ticketed by a highway policeman. I am a truck driver and a ticket was the last thing I needed. After doing my homework on someone best to represent this case, Mr. Dowden was the person. After a few delays and an appeal, it seemed impossible that we even had a chance. Mr. Dowden stayed persistent with the case which gave me the confidence to see everything to the end. After March 14, 2017, I'm happy to say that with Mr. Dowden's expertise and experience, the case was dismissed after a lack of evidence. If anyone is looking for an attorney who is professional, honest and willing to fight for their clients, look no further.

  • Worked Hard With Wonderful Results
    Cody worked very hard to help me after I got my ticket. He works very hard to get real results, all while being a very realistic about the outcome. He obviously knows his business and does his best to help all his clients. I hope I don't have to engage his services again, but I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

    - Robert

  • Priceless!
    Mr. Dowden is amazing at what he does. Saved my husband when we thought there was no way around it! I would recommend him a million times over.

  • An Angel To My Family
    First I want to start by saying Thank you Cody you are a true blessing. When my family retained you we did not know what to expect or how my brothers situation would go but you made us so happy. My mother and I was in shambles when we got a phone call from Arkansas from my brother in jail our hearts were so heavy that day not knowing what was going on or why we did not know what to do for this situation was just out of the blue and we did not know who to call or who to trust in a very desperate time of need especially with us being in Virginia beach,Va and my brother was facing 10 to 25 years for his charges. But Cody assured he would do all he can to help us ans he did just that and more I believe he is our angel and if you need a great lawyer that will fight for you and go above and beyond Cody is the guy. Again thank you so very much for all that you have done for my family.

  • Amazing Representation
    I hired Cody Dowden for a traffic ticket that I had received years ago when I was passing through Arkansas. I had no idea what City I had received the ticket, but Mr. Dowden was very helpful and figured it all out for me. It only took Mr. Dowden a week and a half to handle my case in the time frame that I needed. He did everything without me having to travel to Arkansas. I am so happy that I hired Cody. He was a man of his word and got everything done. I cannot thank you enough Cody. I truly appreciate you!

  • Couldn't ask for a better experience!
    Cody was fantastic in helping with my traffic ticket...really did all the leg work so I didn't have to. Was very professional and timely in his responses, and very informative on the court processes. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you again, Cody!

  • Thoughtful and Thorough Advice
    Cody explained to me all the steps necessary for sealing my record and helped me weigh my options for my misdemeanor charge. He provided friendly advice over a short phone call at no cost. While that isn't always the case for legal consultations, I will definitely consider him the next time I need to hire a lawyer to help me out. I highly recommend Cody Dowden's services.

  • Best of the Best
    I had a 14 year old case with an active warrant that involved jail time and thousands in fines. I asked a question on AVVO explaining the details , Cody Dowden responded in less then an hour letting me know there were options to handle this. I retained Cody and this guy got charges reduced so I didn't have to do jail time !! And got 5 other charges DISMISSED!! I had to pay less than $700 in fines!!!! I can tell you one thing, if I EVER NEED A LAWYER IN ARKANSAS AGAIN..HANDS DOWN CODY DOWDEN is the man. No issues with contacting him I sent an email got a response within a few hours. I can't believe the outcome of this case , I'm in shock almost !! Thanks Cody for all the help! And I hope for the sake of the good folks of Arkansas you never go to work for the DA'S office! !
